Jake Shears and Babbydaddy sat down with NPR’s Scott Simon Saturday to discuss their new album, Night Work, and some of their latest influences.
When talked turned from the Scissors’ old work to their latest album, Simon asked about Night Work’s provocative album cover art, a Robert Mapplethorpe photograph of ballet dancer Peter Reed’s butt.
“What this this photo, I think, represents ... is a lost time, a time that was lost to AIDS, to people taking real risks in nightlife,” Babbydaddy said.
“There’s a whole generation that died,” Jake Shears added. “A lot of creative people passed away, a lot of people that were in their prime.”
The Scissor Sisters, who played in Los Angeles Saturday night, will perform in Oakland, Calif., tonight. You can hear their interview with NPR here.
